Cesc Fabregas has been declared fit for Spain's World Cup semi-final against Germany on Wednesday after he trained with his team-mates on Tuesday night.

The Arsenal midfielder had a scan on his right leg after taking a knock in training but there was no serious damage and now coach Vicente del Bosque has confirmed he will be available on Wednesday.

He said: "He has trained well. We were quite worried because he took a hit in the same place as his injury but he is available to play."

Fabregas did have a support strip on the back of his leg in training in Durban but took part in a full session with no apparent adverse effects.

There has been speculation that the 23-year-old would start the game since Spain improved dramatically in the quarter-final against Paraguay when he replaced Fernando Torres.

Spain managed 15 shots against Paraguay with 11 of these, and the four on-target efforts, coming in the 34 minutes after Fabregas was on the pitch.
